or republican. if president obama is right that he has the power to say, it does not matter what our federal immigration laws are, i will ignore those laws. and it is not simply prosecutorial discretion. when you register, you are effectively here illegally. if the president can do that, i would be curious what mayor castro would think of a republican president who would begin erasing losses from the books. >> i thought we went through that a couple of years back. [laughter] [applause] >> let's actually talk about that. let's talk about a very specific instance. >> the biggest case in a year as solicitor general is a tragic crime in houston. two teenage girls were horribly murdered. the judicial arm of united nations issued an order to reopen the conviction of 51 murders. and the president, george w. bush, signed an order that attempted to order the state courts to obey the world courts. as solicitor general working for greg debora, on behalf of the state of texas, went before the supreme court and said that the president does not have the authority to unilaterally ignore the law. in fact, i
on the line and we have an obligation to go after them and i do think president obama has been right to wage a tough campaign against al qaeda. al qaeda it is an enemy of the united states. host: we had this headline in " the washington times." "tells support for the rebels -- total support for the rebels." what is your take? guest: at least 25,000 people have died in syria. president obama said the right thing yesterday. the dictator of syria has to go. there has to be in the government. the syrian government is just strong enough to stay in power. they seem to be evenly matched. there doesn't seem to be a clear winner in this war. russia and china are blocking every attempt by the u.n. security council to help the refugees or the rebel alliance or to give a straight message to the dictator in syria. so they are no help. president obama does not want to intervene with troops because it would take too many american troops. i think he is made the right decision not to put american troops in. women have to consider arming the rebels -- we now have to consider arm the rebels. these poor people
that is the best way to go right now. >> we will take you to kent state university where president obama is campaigning in ohio. it is just about to get underway. ♪ ♪ [cheers] >> hello, kent state! [cheers] hello, ohio. well, let's begin by giving brian a big round of applause. [applause] i think he has some talent. he may be going places. he sounded good appear. - up here. i also wanted to acknowledge your outstanding congressman who is here. and your mayor is here. and his wife is here. it is good to see all of you. thank you. thank you. now, let me say this. unless you live under a rock or you did not pay your cable bill, you probably are aware there is an election going on right now in ohio. i was telling the story about my campaign manager, and he was visiting with a young couple. they had a beautiful son. for years old. there was a picture of me on the wall and they were excited. they said, sammy, who is that? he would say barack obama. what does barack obama do? he thought about it for a man and then he said, and he approves this message. -- a minute and then he said, he appro
to bring women back to where they were. obama is still under performing. right now he is winning web i've got nine points. he cannot win this without a majority of women. what is interesting about women's issue, it does have a limited attachment to this. i do not see in the next couple of cycles the republican party becoming more liberal. i think abortion is such an important litmus test. it is hard to see that changing any time soon. >> tell us a little bit about how you see the hispanic vote building. how are they leaning? why is that? what is animating that? will they show up? >> what will be the margin? what will be the turnout the da? there has been disappointment in the latino community on obama and immigration. the margin is quite high. george w. bush and karl rove had a brilliant strategy of outreach to hispanic voters. george bush won for these arm of the vote. -- 40% of the boat. -- vote. now romney is pulling at best in the mid-20's. his own campaign has said they need to reach 30% in order to be competitive in the states or the latino vote will be critical. what the republi
this country back to where it needs to be. my question for the debate was what did obama right about at harvard? we don't have access to newspapers. he always talked about being transparent. i would like to hear what he was writing about and harvard. host: on facebook -- and you can read more on our facebook page. jeffrey in michigan on the democratic line. caller: good morning. thanks for letting me talk on c- span. i don't plan on watching the debate, because it's going to be the same old thing over and over again. i am fairly well-informed. you've got so many people that are uninformed and they call in to c-span. they give us such a great opportunity to speak and then get such ignorant people calling in. i listen, i read, and i inform myself. obama is not really doing anything as far as i can see. i don't blame him for the jobs and that kind of stuff. what i don't like about him is he is keeping this war going. i listen to some independents yesterday and they made more sense than anybody. we are just wasting money on other countries and people are really suffering here. we probably won't get
obama has done that -- and he has reserved the right at the end of the date for the united states foto use force, but he is putting that off for diplomacy. i worked with president george w. bush and secretary of state condoleezza rice on the iran issue for three years. there is a remarkable similarity between the george w. bush policy on iran and barack obama policy. i get the sense in my discussions with senators and congressmen and women on capitol hill that there is a basic bipartisan support for this policy that the last two american presidents have undertaken. we don't want to go to war right now, we don't want to open up the possibility of a third land war in the middle east after iraq and afghanistan. we want to focus on obama's because that is -- we want to focus on diplomacy because that is sensible. last point i will make this we have not had a sustained, substantive conversation with the iranian government since the jimmy carter administration, way back in 1979, 1980. to is in our interest not t talk to them, not because we like that government, but we want to see this resol
was in the suburbs here in virginia. and that's his photo. and right below that is president obama, and you can see his photo. this is the president right there speaking with supporters. so those are the two photos in "the washington post" for the last two days. next call comes from eric, a republican in hedgesville, west virginia. eric, good morning to you. caller: yeah, good morning. you have to be either deaf, dumb, or stupid not to be able to see the bias in the media. take, for instance, when mccain was running for president, and the "new york times" ran a front page story, he was having an affair with this lady. you know, no proof, nothing, just, you know, put it out there to try to disparage mccain. i was watching brian sawyer on abc right after the 47% thing came out with romney, and she spent the first 12 minutes of her program talking about this, what romney said, and the middle east was burning down. you know, what's more important ? however, this is another thing. the top-secret information coming out of the white house going to the "new york times," you know, that puts lives at stake.
the country back on the right track? >> yeah! >> after four years the recovery that president obama promised is nowhere in sight. he said if he just could borrow a bunch of money and spend it on his friends unemployment would never get above 8%. it has been above 8% for 43 months. we had 23 million americans struggling to find work, 15% of our fellow countrymen and women are in poverty today. president obama, the economy is barely growing, he's run out of ideas and just the other day on tv he said that he can't change washington from the inside. why do we send presidents to washington in the first place? isn't that what we are supposed to do? don't we send them with a message to washington? if he can't change washington we need to change presidents and we need to elect this man the next president of the united states. the choice before us is very clear. we are offering real reforms for a real recovery. we cannot afford four more years of president obama's failed policies. what mitt romney is offering, what we are saying is, here are big ideas, big solutions, that are designed to get people b
the years before obama. no regulations on wall street. it's very worrisome. i think obama is doing the right thing trying to regulate especially on wall street, because wall street is a funding tunnel of getting money out of this country and not taxing the rich. host: money is in oklahoma, republican. good morning. caller: the man before me was just on the talking points of the democrats. the vice-president does not make a difference to me. but the president does. when this man obama gets in there again, people are going to suffer. hen hea terrible thing wen wants us to be a third world country and the like all the rest of the countries. we're not like all the rest of the country's. we fought not to be like all the rest of the countries. the polls are skewed. they did not ask me. there are plenty of other people they did not ask either. so there are plenty of people who will vote for romney. he will be surprised when that day comes. host: thanks for calling. lots of financial stories in the papers today. the front page of the new york times this morning has the story about the payroll tax. t
. -- gentleman over there. right there. >> when you said president obama hould say, and attac attack on israel would result, an attack on america and america would respond, is that already not too late? said the attack the on iran before they develop the capability to attack? >> this is not a "gotcha" situation. the president has already said we will not permit iran to get the nuclear bomb. he said that. hold it. what i am saying is that was clear -- that is what he has said. the united states will decide for itself when it is appropriate to stop them. israel has a different point of view. the united states has a different point of view. what i have said is totally different than that. and just as important. >> truly, the last question. this woman. i will have to get both of you. [laughter] two more. these two women. that one and that one. >> one thing is true. the people who come to this conference are motivated. nobody is some of that was created by our esteemed guests. >> what is congress doing? i am petrified president obama .ill be reelected des what can congress do to rein in some of the
settled down and stabilized and there is more political consensus. look at what the obama administration is doing right now. it's not that different from what the bush administration did throughout its to terms, especially at the end. given that there is that consensus, that is one of the recent national security is not an issue. it's also why some things are a little more litigious in the national security area. >> this will be the last question. >> any predictions for retirement? >> i need it will depend on who the next president is. obviously we have several justices who are getting older, but i think most of them would feel if they were voluntarily retiring and not forced to do so by health concerns or other circumstances, the honorable thing to do is retiring during the term of the party that a plea to do in the first place. you could seek justice ginsburg -- i think she is trying to make a record for how long she is staying on the court. if president obama is there, we may see her retire. you may see scalia or kennedy retire if we have a president romney. it makes a huge shift in t
, our choice is do we stay on the same path we are on, the one that obama put us on, a nation in debt, in doubt and decline, or do we reclaim the founding principles and get the country back on the right track? >> yeah! >> after four years the recovery that president obama promised is nowhere in sight. he said if he just could borrow a bunch of money and spend it on his friends unemployment would never get above 8%. it has been above 8% for 43 months. we had 23 million americans struggling to find work, 15% of our fellow countrymen and women are in poverty today. president obama, the economy is barely growing, he's run out of ideas and just the other day on tv he said that he can't change washington from the inside. why do we send presidents to washington in the first place? isn't that what we are supposed to do? don't we send them with a message to washington? if he can't change washington we need to change presidents and we need to elect this man the next president of the united states. the choice before us is very clear. we are offering real reforms for a real recovery. we cannot a
so far. are others giving him and the obama administration a grade? >> it depends on who you ask. he gets the full range. he is right to point out that it is hard to save the nation's housing market. is very localized. some places are hurting. ihe is right to say it has improved a lot. there are millions of people that are facing foreclosure. a frustration on the half a million people who cannot access these rates that the fed has pushed down so low. has pushed down so low.
. it was like 44, 30 to last time. right now, obama has the edge. the senate race, we're seeing routinely as the average 85% of the people who vote for obama are voting for the democratic candidate. i think is very likely that whoever wins the presidential race in virginia, there will also win the event of the senate race. >> when you're looking at this affluent voters, many are connected to the boom that the public spending. that is also something that chip to perception of the two campaigns. but the numbers are very close to nationally. the noncom the whites are a little worse. a lot of the blue-collar whites are also evangelical. i did their strong candidates. will the democratic primary look like. hillary clinton is an important figure. she is not intensely disliked by last affluent republicans. she has a very distinctive political identity. is there a voice that says the party has to reach a broader range of voters? >> cristina think did not scale up. -- christie, i think, did not scale up. daniel, ryan -- is there a candid who invented the jeb bush analysis if mitt romney loses? >>
the psychology, president obama, i am right there with you. i think we all may be on the couch. i want to know who has been to a shrink. the best thing in the world is to get to talk about the things that matter most to you and have somebody give you feedback that is useful. i asked him, had you ever talk to anyone about that? i could see the wheels turning and i am not even thinking about that question right here. >> back? -- next? >> how did he feel about that? >> i had a feeling that if we were back in college, we would have a really good conversation. >> he had been asked 20 questions and it was all about the news of the day. my mother had been interested in the new earth series. we had had this conversation about what the philosophy was behind it. i asked him if he recognized it and he said that he had not read that. his staff was e-mail me, what kind of crazy question? it was the last question, it wasn't televised. i felt like i would learn a little bit about him if i had known that. my mom was very happy. >> what is the most outrageous thing you have done for a scoop? tell us the truth.
thousands of lives and over $1 trillion, it is time to do nation-building right here at home. since obama used pretty much the same words, so did we in our fact check that night. we recycled what we had used. when we were asked to predict mistakes candidates would make again in the debate, this one seemed like pretty much in natural. even before today, actually, last friday, in woodbridge, virginia, obama said again that he wants to use or savings to pay down the debt and put people to work. i think that is fair game for the debates if they go there. for romney, i have a prediction that i think is solid. it goes back to the title of his campaign book two years ago -- "no apology." ever since, romney has made a point to criticize obama every time he thinks there is any whiff of apology in something the president has said. i first heard it myself last april here in town, when romney was making a speech to a group of newspaper executives. he blamed obama for the anemic recovery and said, "obama's attention has been elsewhere. he was not focused enough on the economy. his attention had been o
it. we have five minutes. we can negotiate a deal right here. do you favor the plan, senator obama? senator mccain, are you in favor of this plan? >> we have not seen the language yet. i think there is constructive work being done out there for the viewers who are watching. i am optimistic. the question i think we need to ask ourselves is how did we get into this situation in the first place? two years ago, i warned that because of the relaxed regulation, we would potentially have a problem in trying to stop the abuses and mortgages that were taking place at the time. last year, i wrote to the secretary of treasury to make sure he understood the magnitude of this problem and to call on him to bring all the stakeholders together to try to deal with it. the question i think we have to ask ourselves is yes we have to solve this problem short term. we will have to intervene. there is no doubt about it. but we will also have to look at how is it that we have shredded so many regulations, we did not set up a 21st century regulatory framework to deal with these problems, and that is in pa
think neither candidate right now has a comprehensive plan that leads the six principles we're talking about. president obama does not really have a plan because his plan is his budget but his budget was rejected unanimously by the senate and house in the last two years so he has to start over again. mitt romney has a plant -- p lan he has not provided enough specifics and some of the specifics, the numbers did not at that. that is why it is critically important for both to be most pacific -- more specific, more solutions oriented in the debate so we can make an informed choice about who to support and they can claim they have a mandate. the people can then be involved to help get a fiscal burden next year. it is critically important. >> will you be watching the presidential debates? >> yes, i watched them. >> as you watch them and have watched them and you recall your own participation 20 years ago, what do you think about when you see these debates that have happened since then? >> not much. [laughter] this maneuvering back and forth. that is what i would call it. >> last question --
. look what happened the first two years -- even though it took obama two years to get the healthcare through, they still had everything right there. unless you have a complete representative, you know, in there that represents everyone and just not one side, like all progressives or all republicans, you don't have those checks and balances, whether it's the legislative, judicial, presidency, whatever. you need -- the bottom line -- you know, there's one problem on this whole thing. obama is not a politician. i mean, he cannot negotiate. reagan was in there. he had a democrat in congress, and he was able to negotiate like several people. obama can't do that. he goes out there and says, hey, this is my bill. he doesn't know how to negotiate. host: thanks for calling. in "the wall street journal" this morning, making a difference is their headline. romney campaign seeks to portray tough and nice image. obama team aims to avoid a gaffe. they write -- host: back to the phones. linda on our line for democrats, calling from florida this morning. go ahead, linda. caller: i believe in a one-p
we see today? state after state, efforts to suppress voting rights instead of expanding them. not enough people vote in this country. in pennsylvania, there is legislation now on the books that could disenfranchise between 750,000-1 million people. president obama won by 600,000 boats in pennsylvania last time. this really does determine the election. i don't care who you are for. this will determine the election. it is a huge problem or the country. we should be celebrating voters going to the polls, not putting impediments in their way. host: the radio program "democracy now" turns 25 this year? guest: we started in 1996. we were just on radio. the week of september 11, 2001, we started on the first television station in new york city on public access. then it just caught on like wildfire beyond the election and more television stations aired us and radio stations and npr stations and pbs stations all over the country. we just went on pbs in washington, d.c. and whuc at howard university and we are now on over 1100 stations. it was originally from pacifica radio. that was f
anything to get into the race cycle with obama and romney? host: what do you say? guest: right now i'm excluded from the first debate. the commission is the presidential debate commission and that is private and made up of republicans and democrats with no interest in seeing a third voice on stage. we have filed three lawsuits to get me on stage based on other third-party candidates who have filed lawsuits. there doesn't seem to be much hope. we filed on the antitrust round, something that has not been done before. host: how much do these debates matter and what are you looking for to hearing on wednesday? guest: the debates are tantamount to me having a chance of winning. you can close the lid on winning the election. is winning getting enough votes to cause one of the other two who ends up winning to give more than just lip service to these issues? potentially. i view this as a victory every single day. there are so many people -- i think i speak on behalf of the majority of americans. i think they consider themselves fiscally responsible and socially respecting. i am in that broad
the beautiful obama smile. it's the best picture they can find. then right below it, there will be a picture of romney sneering, angry, like he is yelling at the crown. in fact, there are thousands of pictures available of romney available with a beautiful smile on his face and looking positive and have me. they refuse to print those pictures. it is for people who do not read and just look at the pictures. that is one thing that the media will do in newspapers. they do it all the time. they will find every glowing picture possible of hillary clinton that they can find. host: kevin, we will leave it there. beverly in missouri, on the democratic line. caller: good morning, peter. host: how are you? caller: i'm fine. you remind me of richard gere. [laughter] host: used to say i look like lance armstrong. i will take that one, too. caller: i mean in the way you dress. host: that was a little before my time. caller: you should watch it. beverly, what the think about media coverage of the campaign? caller: i think they go with whatever the hot story of the day. i remember when obama was running ag
of these -- a tension of these two conflicting rights going on here. rule proposed by the obama administration says these church institutions had to provide comprehensive health care for their employees. many catholics and many as opponents -- and many proponents of religious liberty oppose the obama that is rationed. but to its great credit, the obama and a trace of proposed a compromise, that such employees would be covered for contraception, but the institution would not have to pay for it. ms. fluke called that a brilliant solution. no compromise is perfect by definition, but nonetheless, it seemed to me this was an ideal way to handle a situation. unfortunately, the united states bishops failed to go along with it and post it in the name of religious freedom. i think they have forgotten the freedom and rights of other people. i think compromise is an ideal way to solve these issues. it has been dead in the past. it has not always been done. let's face it, the whole political spectrum today, both left and right, is unwilling to compromise. it's always going to be hard to work out. let me close
in rwanda. now she goes to ethiopia and eulogizes the worst human rights abuser in africa. how can the united states to preach about human rights when their own ambassador are telling the world that -- it is a disgrace. i wish barack obama tells this woman that she is not representing the united states in the united nations. thank you very much. guest: thank you very much for that. i have to frame my answer with a disclaimer or a caveat. i have no susan rice since i was 12 years old. she was a year ahead of me at the girls' junior or senior high school across the way, growing up in washington, and she has been a friend of mine for quite some time. my sense -- trying to be a little dispassionate. my sense is that she has been a very effective u.n. ambassador. no question that she -- and she will admit it and committed a publicly -- she feels a tremendous burden about the situation in rwanda. in 1994, she was 30 years old. i believe she was at the national security council at the time before becoming assistant secretary of state for african affairs. she, along with many in the clinto

. "the new york times" rights abroad this, the continuity about obama and bush, for that matter. they only changed things 10 degrees one way or the other. there will be some issues. obviously, there's no question that romney takes a different view on how to deal with russia. on iran, it's harder call, for instance. maybe you're going to get to this eventually, -- >> we are only 25 minutes in. i consider it to be an on unreasonable possibility regardless of who is in the white house that the united states might end up engaging in military action with iran, what will that do to all of these consensuses about spending and whether american people are injected in foreign policy and issues like the defense budget? as issues like that and the ones we do not even know about that make me wary of all of these straight line projections we're making in the future of based on what things look like right now. >> which point? >> any of them. but i meant the one about iran and the likelihood we would enter into that regardless of who wins. what's right now, it's not clear to me. >> question fro
binghamton, new york. caller: i am not understanding the economy the way it is right now, why we are spending so much time on this -- i voted for president obama but obamacare is a mess and it is not going to help. it will make things worse. as far as employers being mandated right now, with the economy the way it is, to cover more health insurance, they cannot do it. my employer cannot give us a raise right now because they cannot afford to, so how will they afford to pay for health care for us? host: arkansas attorney-general scott pruitt. guest: i own business, at the aaa baseball team here in oklahoma city for eight years, and i don't firsthand what the cost of medical inflation. at that time, 12%-50% a year and the past years, 20-plus. a real issue both for employers and employees, the importance of delivering health care in this country in a more efficient and better way and empowering patients, restoring the physician-patient relationship and a way that i'd think is important for the future. all of those, providing a competitive product is something congress -- and i commend congress f
near canada, right? the canadians have this figured out. the canadians lowered their taxes to 15%. president obama wants to tax our successful small businesses to go above 40%? when we tax our job creators at much higher tax rates than our foreign competitors tax theirs, they win, we lose. we have to get right with the idea that our jobs come from successful small businesses. we don't want to tax them more, we don't want to regulate them more, we want them to hire more. that is essential. [applause] and none of this is going to work. no business is going to be confident to take that risk to hire people, to advance people, to give people promotions and raises and job security if they see their government borrowing and spending like it is. we can't keep borrowing 36 cents of every dollar our government spends. we can't keep the federal reserve doing what it's doing. we cannot keep looking our children in the eyes knowing that we're going to give them a diminished future because we are spending their money today. it is a very simple idea. mitt romney and i are going to bring it to w
, i have more confidence that president obama can get that done than governor romney appeared >> -- then governor romney. >> right now, you're trying to get a sales tax increase to pay for pre-k. can you defend, sitting next to someone who does not like texas famously, the decision to brought to market with a tax increase even for something you so strongly believe in? many mayors are with you, but there are a lot of elected officials and san antonio who are not with you. >> basically, i fundamentally believe that brainpower is the currency of success. in the 21st century global economy. those communities that created will be the communities that thrive in our market economy. and those communities that do not will be the ones who fall behind. san antonio, i believe, needs to make a huge investment in education. that investment is not limited to more money. it also means getting paren involved. it also means expecting more from everybody along whole education ecosystem, from administrators to policy-makers to teachers come expecting more out of everyone. so what i have on the ta
brought a degree of urgency. one approach calls for the lowering of individual rights across the board and the reduction of existing tax exemptions. president obama and some democrats have called for continuing the bush tax cuts for middle income families. what do you think is the best approach to individual tax rate that can reduce the deficit? >> we do need to make sure we're not raising taxes, especially in this tough economy. what is good for the country is to create jobs. that is how we get going again to help manage down that debt. we do not want to raise taxes. we want comprehensive reform. when companies are looking to relocate, it is not always attracted to locate here because we're the highest taxed locale. we need to bring the corporate tax rates down and to make sure we change the peculiarly in tax law which forces american based multinationals. we need to make sure they did not pay taxes twice if they are operating abroad. we did not have a territorial system. we have a system which ties one hand behind the back. we want them here. they create jobs. we know the overwhelmin
. he did not want to give a grade for their efforts so far. are others giving him and the obama administration a grade? >> it depends on who you ask. he get the full range. he is right to point out that it is hard to save the nation's housing market. he is right to say it has improved a lot. there are millions of people that are facing foreclosure. a frustration on the half a million people who cannot access these rates that the fed has pushed down so low. there are still a lot of people hurting even as the market improves. that is why you see people pushing these three financing bills. that would be an instant fix for a lot of families. we asked why the campaign is the actual talking about housing policy. there are specifics that governor romney could go after. he is not. >> he's not been willing to talk about it. even some of the president's allies are disappointed with his stance on housing. they have not come close watctot they set out to do. gov. romney does not have a whole lot of detail out there that he wants to talk. he has been reluctant to talk. that is a contrast to
america should be. and america during world war ii protected italy -- i'm getting nervous now. obama is a marxist. he does not believe in the way of the the united states. the american people better wake- up. we will lose our rights little by little. i want money to be spent on defense. host: do we outspend most of the world on defense spending? guest: we spend most of the rest of the world. try to compare in the state's spending and china is impossible. labor rates are different. you cannot live it up and say this, this, and this -- cannot line it up. this is the way history has gone. there is a benefit to our citizens to maintaining an appropriate balance in peace in this world. the caller was talking about the way things were back in world war ii. was a time when the united states went into war without the proper equipment. we had people training with broomsticks because they did not have rifles. cars have a sign that said "tank" to give them the idea of what it would be like when they hit the beaches in europe. we never want to be in that position again. "we can just pull back."

the trees are the same size." the right height, i'm sorry. what? maybe steve can explain that later. going back to obama. he is saying the "you did not bill that." another one saying, "my case for reelection is clear." did you have that, the economy, free guns for bad guys. " solo twister? "and he's losing." super pacs make me crazy. each party -- each candidate could spend over $1 billion. 8 $2 billion campaign. i wish somebody would come up with a model that would pass constitutional muster. citizens united, is corporation a person? we have to find a middle ground. this is an example of a bad card team. it is the truth, fast and furious case where they gave guns too bad guys. they were used to kill an american officer. executive privilege denied any further investigations of the case. it is the non smoking gun. this says "we are spending more than we are taking an." "and?" the reaction to what is happening in syria. the president says "president putin, a word? "not a good time, i'll call you." wall street is having a comeback. there is the president writing the baby bull. "forward to nov
me add another thought -- if obama, in fact, continues where he is now and wins the election, i think there is a very good chance that the republican party could split in half. you might have a far right party, a tea party, let's say, and a more moderate centrist republican party that might appeal to certain centrist democrats. i think it is possible if the election ends up where it is now that there would be a third party in our future. it would be similar to the election of 1860 where the democratic party split over the issue of slavery with the northern democratic party and a southern democratic party and that is the first time the republicans won national office with lincoln. a similar think it happen this time. if mitt romney wins, they will stick together, obviously. if they do not win, i think there is a chance that the republicans could come apart at the seams. host: this is a hypothetical because the polls indicate it will happen but of one party or the other were to gain the white house, the house, and the senate, would that be better? could we get more done as a country? gu
president obama did was correct. the european union collectively did the same. i did try to work in the same direction. at that we have done what he had been able to do together in the right direction. the first was tunisia, than he did, and a complicated situation -- then egypt, then it difficult and complicated situation in libya. have we done enough? i think probably not. we have not done enough in helping. when you look at money, this is an important role in these countries in which a lot of the problems are linked to lack of hope for the younger generations, etc. if you look at the amount of money and put it to the value of today, it will be the -- about ten times more than what we have spent in this period of time in the countries of the mediterranean. in 1995, the was an engagement in the european union and the south part of the mediterranean, including also the palestinians and israel. we spent that time a good amount of money but we are not able to do what later on the people of tunisia and cairo need. i think we were not able to get -- to listen to the wills of many people that wan
on vacation. >> i want to talk about immigration for a moment. as you know, president barack obama acted by executive order back in june to allow 1.7 million undocumented immigrants who came to the u.s. as children to stay if they meet certain conditions. did the president to the right thing? >> i would have supported the dream act. these are kids who came here and gives them a chance to become citizens and serve the country they love and to go to college. this is an issue of security. we first have to secure our borders. next, we have to actually take the laws we have and enforce those laws. thirdly, we have to address immigration. we want the best and brightest to come to this country occurred we wanted to get their education. and we want them to build their companies here. that is what moves our economy forward. >> should we keep all those people here in the united states or send some of them back? >> we should have those who have successfully graduated from college apply for an extension of their leases and over time get a chance to become citizens so they can build their companies h
states but in this case, i have a very clear. i think what president obama did was correct. the european union collectively did the same. i did try to work in the same direction. at that we have done what he had been able to do together in the right direction. the first was tunisia, than he did, and a complicated situation -- then egypt, then it difficult and complicated situation in libya. have we done enough? i think probably not. we have not done enough in helping. when you look at money, this is an important role in these countries in which a lot of the problems are linked to lack of hope for the younger generations, etc. if you look at the amount of money and put it to the value of today, it will be the -- abouiut ten times more than what we have spent in this period of time in the countries of the mediterranean. in 1995, the was an engagement in the european union and the south part of the mediterranean, including also the palestinians and israel. we spent that time a good amount of money but we are not able to do what later on the people of tunisia and cairo need. i think we were
